Don’t Need Ketchup

Original Hippie Hash

Last night as I slunk off from a bar called Rush wondering where I should go since I was now inebriated, alone, and had $12 in my pocket(does anyone else “run away” like this or is it just me?). Fleetwood Diner it is. This place is historic in Ann Arbor, MI. It’s like a cousin of the “hole-in-wall”: hole-in-trailer. The diner itself is literally a trailer.

 

It’s very small, and because of it’s popularity in the magical hours of *drunk* the outdoor seating is used year round. 

I wasn’t that drunk actually. So I pulled up a seat at the bar and just ordered their famous dish- Hippie Hash. Veggies over potato hash with eggs and toast+feta. Truly a perfect combo. And trying to be less annoying I opted out of ketchup and you know what America? You don’t actually need ketchup on everything. IT’S GOOD. ALL GOOD.

Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits

Twitter is a really fun way to record thoughts that you forget about!

Forgotten Thoughts:

  • What was that song did I sing at Karaoke?
  • Oh yea, it was Videophone. And I didn’t know any of the lyrics so I laughed the whole time.
  • An Asian Captain America literally tried to beat me up.
  • I suggested we go outside, implying I have a black belt in jujitsu or something.
  • His friend convened and I commented on the peace and good in people. Bless them, right?

The tweets no longer exist, much like the actual memory of the moment. One tweet that is still there is something that subconsciously influenced this post, I watched a video about biscuits. It was cool. And then I made these. Thanks Ina!!!
